Professional Learning & Development
Professional Learning & Development
An inclusive work or learning environment supports people of all abilities. Nearly 20% of individuals of all ages struggle with reading, writing or math. Learn how you can support these highly talented and creative individuals to maximize their potential.
We train teams to understand the basics of struggling readers and dyslexics. We educate on the common myths and facts, the warning signs, provide a hands-on-simulation to experience how dyslexia impacts individuals, and we explain how accommodations and assistive technology can help “level the playing field”. We discuss the dyslexia experience in-depth and help you create a dyslexia friendly environment.
Educators and Schools
We provide Professional Learning on dyslexia including the latest research on the struggling reader and dyslexic student, educate on the warning signs and accommodations needed for the classroom, provide hands-on learning opportunities and take-aways which can be used immediately in the classroom. We also include a powerful dyslexia simulation. We will include how to create a dyslexia friendly environment and discuss the dyslexia experience in depth.
Dyslexia can be detected as early as pre-school. Students can be screened with a 92.5% accuracy rate as early as 5 ½ – 6 ½ years old according to the National Institutes of Health. Most of the challenges dyslexic students encounter can be prevented if we screen and identify them early and provide the appropriate type of reading instruction starting in Kindergarten. If a student is dyslexic, their academic struggles are amplified in middle and high school, often causing them to fall behind academically.
We can help your school with screening, specialized push-in and pull-out programs, understanding accommodations, as well as professional learning on dyslexia.
